East Herts Community Badminton Network

East Herts Community Badminton Network

EH CBN comprises all clubs, junior and adult, schools, college, sport facilities and those interested in promoting and supporting badminton in the borough.
Contact: Doug Clark

We formed in 2014 after an approach by Badminton England we decided to not take up their offer as we felt there conditions were not compatible with our ideas.


We started with five junior clubs and are now six and hope we can encourage all local east herts clubs to participate in our plans. We the club coaches have been visiting the member clubs to help and learn from each other as some times we can feel isolated in our own  little world.


The CBN first project is a fun tournament to be held at Ware Drill Hall on Sunday 9th March all juniors are invited we hope to link with other Hertfordshire CBNs to promote badminton in both junior and adult participation

Update your Email Preferences or miss important information
Please can you remind all your members that they need to update their email preferences on the new Badminton England Go Membership system,  otherwise they will not receive any communication from them.

They should have received a generic message directly from Badminton England once you affiliated your club and all your members but Badminton England have advised that some members have not carried out this simple task.

It only takes a few minutes and  click here for a brief guide which shows members how to do this.

It is important to note that if members do not update this section they will default to “ Do Not Contact” and Badminton England will not send them any future communication.
